'Fatter Taylor Swift' Takes on Bullies in a Very Swiftie Way (PHOTOS)

Meet the girl who looks just like pop star Taylor Swift -- and acts like it even more. Keitra Jane has amassed a number of Instagram followers, in part because of her resemblance to the "Blank Space" singer, but also because she shuts down online bullies with class.

Twenty-one-year-old Keitra bears an uncanny resemblance to Swift and was thrilled to be called one of her doppelgangers ... that is, until she got bullied for it.

People would leave rude comments on her Instagram pics, calling her "Taylor with a bigger rack/boobs," or even, "a fatter Taylor Swift." She told Seventeen magazine, "I've always been taller than most of my peers, but being called fat just hurt."

But Jane wasn't about to let mean people get away with saying hurtful things -- especially since she suffered with an eating disorder in high school. She reposted the hateful comment, and responded with a statement:

Internet bullying contributes to disordered eating. People need to understand that nothing on the internet goes unnoticed, and when you publicize your comments or suggestions you aren't just writing on a wall, you're writing to a real person. This is just one of millions of hurtful comments that are given to REAL people every day. This isn't a sympathy post, this is information. You need to know that words have power to do harm or promote positivity. Use your power for good! #NEDA @centerforchange #nedaawareness #loveyourbody #healthybodyhealthylife.

Good for her! Celebrity (or look-alike celebrity) or not, these are real people who have emotions too. Just because they have a public image doesn't make them immune to insults.

In her interview for Seventeen, Jane said that she wants everyone to "understand that happiness doesn't come from living up to other people's expectations; it comes from fulfilling the role you see yourself in and allowing yourself to be true to your own identity."

Accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative. (Anybody spot coop?) �

Now those are wise words. This girl is obviously as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.
